8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, following the tradition of men, after the practices and customs of the world, and not after Christ.
20 Therefore if you are dead with Christ from the customs and practices of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to its rules [and customs]:
21 (Do not touch; do not taste; do not handle,
22 Which all perish with using), after the commands and doctrines of men?
7 You hypocrites, Isaiah did correctly prophesy of you, saying,
8 'This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their hearts are far from me.1 [From the word of the Lord within: "The hypocrite may talk of faith and do evil. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion." Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. Until your heart has been washed, cleansed, and purified, your heart is full of sin, and you are defiled; and should you die still sinning, you will be banned from heaven.]
9 But in vain they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.'"2 [God is a Spirit, and those who worship him, must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24. So worship from your carnal mind, (which is enmity with God), speaking from your mind's will, praying from your mind, reciting a previous teaching, or singing from your mind, your words are spoken from your carnal mind and evil imagination, both repugnant to the Lord. The Apostle Paul and the early Quakers termed such worship, will-worship: worship according to man's will and mind, which mind is carnal and enmity with God. Worship in Spirit and Truth is worship with words supplied by the Spirit of God to someone who is also in the truth, (in Jesus, translated into the kingdom, in His presence); any other worship is idolatry and abomination, including all the so-called sacraments. From the word of the Lord within: "Sin in believers is intolerable. We need to get clean before we can truly worship. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. None of the churches reflect true Christianity. When they pray, they don't pray to God; they pray to their collective conscience." In vain does Christianity worship Jesus and God because they pray to an image they have created based on which scriptures they think are valid and their opinion of what those scriptures mean; thus creating an imagined image of God according to their collective conscience. Worshiping in vain, they also take His name in vain.]
|2 Timothy 4:3-4|
3 For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap [accumulate in piles] to themselves teachers after their own lusts, who will say what their itching ears want to hear; [In Christianity today there are millions of blind-guide preachers and blind-guide teachers in the ditch, along with their billions of captive followers, whom they have led into the ditch; the blind guides' lies have been preached by so many for so long, their lies have become pervasive in all of Christianity. From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. Like Daniel, you are captive of the Chaldeans. Your place of worship is filled with unclean birds." (Unclean birds are fallen, corrupted angels — demons.)]
4 And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and will be turned to fables.1 [The whole world has been turned to the fables of make-believe Christianity, the Whore of Babylon, riding the beast of many names, with horns like a lamb; believing the fable of consequence-free sin through the transfer of the meaning of grace from the truth: that with repentance the Spirit of God commands us to deny lusts and ungodliness, as it purifies us to live a soberly, godly life in this present world —transferred instead to the twisted fable that grace excuses all past, present, and future sins in believers, thereby excusing believers to live in their lusts and pride as they please with no laws; which was predicted here and in Revelation. From the Word of the Lord within: "They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. The enemy is in all of Christianity. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior. All men are without excuse. If I were silent, they would have an excuse; every man has heard the call to repent. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care."]
|2 Peter 2:18-19|
18 For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. [To live in error is to live in sin.]
19 Although these false teachers promise them liberty, they themselves are the slaves of corruption [sin, immorality]; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved.4 [The blind guides of Christianity teach the liberty of consequence-free sin and that there is no need to bear the cross; but Jesus said, "Unless you repent, all of you will perish," Luke 13:3,5; and Paul said, "The wages of sin is death," Rom 6:23. From the Word of the Lord within: "I am against the shepherds, who have prophesied a false salvation. Consequence-free sin does not exist. There are many that deny the cross and all that is necessary." There is a liberty for a crucified son of God, freed from all sin, walking in the royal law of love and fulfilling the law; but until that occurs, you will be banned from heaven when you die.]
